Hello all, My question is, aside from HP, what are the differences between a 160 and a 170 or 175? Is the 170 a significantly larger tractor,seems like a big jump in HP? Is this series of tractor very reliable? What are the trouble areas? Any input would be useful.

The 160 and 170 are completely different tractors. I haven't owned either one, but I would have a strong preference for the 170. The 170 gas is mechanically the same as a D17 Series 4 which was one of the most reliable tractors ever made and would be my first choice.
The 170 diesels have a Perkins engine.
The 160 is a Renault tractor with Allis styling and 3 cylinder Perkins engine, diesel only. It was a replacement for the D15, but I would rather have a D15. The 160 does have a differential lock and synchronized 10 speed tranny.
The 175 is just an sooped up 170, very similar to late model 170's with hydraulic pump at the front of the crank instead of at the old belt pulley location.
